    Box Score

    AMHERST, Mass. - The Minutewomen scored an early goal and the Huskies could not score an equalizer as the No. 4 University of Connecticut field hockey team dropped a 1-0 decision to UMass on Saturday afternoon in Amherst, Mass. With the loss, UConn slips to 3-1 on the season while UMass improves to 2-3.

    The Minutewomen were receiving votes in the latest Kookaburra/NFHCA Poll and scored only the second goal of the season against UConn.

    UMass got on the board at the 20:34 mark of the first half. Lindsay Bowman found the back of the net for the first time of the 2010 season after Mika Black dribbled into the circle and fired a shot towards the net. Bowman got a stick on it and redirected it into the back of the net to give the Minutewomen a 1-0 lead.

    Reigning BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week Sarah Mansfield made four saves for the Huskies while Alesha Widdall stopped all six shots she faced.

    The Huskies out-shot the Minutewomen by an 11-to-10 margin and held a 6-to-5 edge in shots on goal.

    UConn made some adjustments in the second half, out-shooting UMass 8-to-5 and out-cornering the Minutewomen 4-to-3.

    The Huskies are back in action on Sunday, September 12 when the team travels to upstate New York to take on No. 18 Albany. Game time is set for 2 p.m. in New York's state capital.
